You Can Quote Me!

I love quotes!  They seem to so often sum up how I feel in just a few words.  They don't have to be from some serious long ago academic.  They can be light & fun.  Like "You're Never Too Old to do Goofy Stuff"  from the irrepressible Ward Cleaver!

Another favorite, although more serious, is "It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are", by e.e.cummings.  I think that we forget how important it is to be true to ourselves, and that quote reminds me to try.


This one, by Josh Billings, reads:  "Do Not Put Off until tomorrow what can be enjoyed today".  Now, those are words to live by!

This is how I want to live my life!!

And when times are challenging, it is always helpful to remember that "if notheing ever changed, there would be no butterflies..."

And I have just purchased a few stamps with quotes that I love!  Look for them to show up on a card soon!  "Life is not waiting for the storm to pass, it's dancing in the rain".  And Flavia tells us "Some people come into our lives and quietly stay.  Others, stay for a while, leaving footprints in our hearts and we are never the same".  And finally, from the late, great John Lennon, "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans".

So, what is your favorite quote?  Please share them with me!  You might find them showing up in a card, or on Facebook, even right here in another posting!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. "Excellence doesn't just happen.
    It must be forged, tested and used.
    It must be passed down.
    And woven into the very fabric of our souls...Until it becomes our nature."
    ~ General Charles C. Krulak ~
    31st Commandment of the Marine Corps

  2. Good one! A lesson for us all - don't we sometimes just expect excellence without effort? Thnks for sharing!

  3. Beautiful blog and photos, have a nice day Radka.
